Challenge #5 - Redo of a Magazine photo


Challenge #5 of Jen Worden's weekly challenges. We are to take any magazine photo and outline the image with marker and then gesso areas you desire to paint. We are experimenting with different compositions. My magazine photo came from a Nick's Jr. Family Magazine I happened to stumble upon in my daughter's room. The image is a mother who is balancing a head full of dirty dishes on her head.
I worked the image several times over with the marker and gesso. I also took a razor blade to it and scraped randomly throughout the page. It was an interesting challenge!

wow! LOVE this Carla. It just begs to be a big BIG painting. Almost feels african in nature. Fantastic!

Wow, it's terrific. My silly cat that I tried doesn't seem nearly as complex and varied as your image. Just love it!
